Secure Desktop Provisioner supports Renesas E2 emulator Lite
Designed to accelerate secure prototyping and production, the Secure Desktop Provisioner from Secure Thingz, an IAR Systems company, supports the Renesas RX microcontroller family.
Secure Desktop Provisioner now supports Renesas E2 emulator Lite (E2 Lite), enabling secure programming and provisioning of applications based on Renesas RX family of microcontrollers to protect critical IP, inhibit malware injection, and support advanced device onboarding
The Secure Desktop Provisioner and Secure Thingsz‘s Security Development Environment Embedded Trust version 1.50 enables rapid development, implementation, prototyping and volume production of secure embedded applications based on Renesas RX MCUs, says the company.
Secure Desktop Provisioner with Renesas E2 Lite support is available for Renesas RX MCU Family as part of the Security from Inception Suite, a complete set of tools and services for implementing and customising security in embedded applications.
Secure development, programming and provisioning are crucial in meeting the demands of secure industrial IoT applications and achieving the IEC 62443 standard specifications. IEC 62443 demands personalisation of devices to achieve sufficient security for many applications, and to protect from a range of attacks such as ransomware and attacks from sophisticated hackers. Secure provisioning provides characteristics to every device being produced. This enables every programmed device to be identified and acted upon, whether this is to provide authentication, or to enable updates to be targeted to a single device, or a group.
“IoT security standards, such as IEC 62443, are rapidly impacting all aspects of the IoT”, said Haydn Povey, founder and CEO, Secure Thingz / general manager Embedded Security Solutions, IAR Systems. “Purchasing decisions are now being made based on achieving the right level of security, and end users are requiring their equipment be resilient against cyber-attacks today, and into the future. To achieve robust systems that can be managed and updated, and to protect customers from future malware and ransom, it is critical that security must be implemented from inception, throughout the design, development and implementation phases,” he said.
IAR Systems provides the complete C/C++ compiler and debugger toolchain IAR Embedded Workbench with design flexibility for embedded developers using the Renesas product portfolio. Embedded Workbench has been extended to include build tools supporting implementation in Linux-based frameworks for automated application build and test processes.
